in arizona, which the republican senator there, john mccain, has been holding in his home state. the woman who stopped the tucson, arizona shooter was there in the room when this happened today at john mccain's town hall. >> my 24-year-old son alex was murdered in a movie theater in aurora, colorado. these assault weapons allow a shooter to fire many rounds without having to reload. these weapons do not belong on our streets. >> i can tell you right now you need some straight talk. that assault weapons ban will not pass the congress of the united states. [ applause ] >> i said that was today. that was actually yesterday. john mccain's arizona constituents, you can hear them at the end there applauding boisterously at his ability to bestow some patented john mccain straight talk on that woman, who obviously needs it, that woman whose son was killed less than a year ago in the aurora, colorado mass shooting. that's the footage that was aired by channel 3 in phoenix. obviously, there was an edit between the end of the woman's question and the part where john mccain sneers the straight talk li
't want there to have been something missed because of this hang-up in washington. >> john mccain acknowledged hagel will get the vote soon, and that probably will be confirmed soon, but mccain's not voting for him. i believe he is qualifinot qual but i believe we shouldn't hold up the vote any longer. >> senator lindsey graham. >> i think we're doing our job to scrutinize i think one of the most unqualified radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> amazing that a former republican senator from nebraska would be called a radical choice for secretary of defense by a fellow republican. even approving to hagel is confirmed when the senate reconvenes next week, the damage may be done. >> quote, it's going to put him in a difficult position once he gets there. i don't think everyone will say we've put you through the ringer, now forget about it. i think it's tragic and i think it's shameful. on "meet the press," mcdonough pushed back on the -- no, he's not going to be a weaker defense secretary. he's going to be a great defense secretary. >> let's remember that r
in washington, d.c. that can do sunday shows? john mccain would be good. >> yeah, he's 234not going to v for him. at the earliest, it won't happen until lawmakers return to washington next week after a ten-day recess. senator john mccain, one of hagel's most outspoken critics, pushed back against suggestions that his opposition was meant to settle old scores. >> is it payback time for chuck hagel? that's what this process has amounted to? >> of course not. 99% of it is to do with the positions that senator hagel has taken. the positions he's taken on various issues has frankly been not only out of the mainstream but far to the left. we will have a vote when we get back, and i'm confident that senator hagel will probably have the votes necessary to be confirmed as the secretary of defense. we have an obligation of advice and consent. i don't intend to give those up when other senators continue to have reasonable questions. i mean reasonable. >> but you're not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no, i don't believe he's qualified, but i don't believe that we should hold up his nomination any furthe
. and arizona senator, john mccain, who suggested the white house has a greater strategy at play. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. does the president really want a result or does he want anoth another -- to beat up republicans? >> the president's new chief of staff is defending this back-up plan saying the administration is only doing what it promised to do from the very beginning. >> we're doing exactly what the president said we would do last month in las vegas, which is we're preparing, we're going to be ready. let's make sure it doesn't have to be proposed. let's make sure that that group up there, the gang of eight, makes a good progress on these efforts, as much as they say they want to. >> all right. so if the leak proves anything, this president and the white house is working on an immigration reform plan. joining me is texas democratic congressman henry quayar. some saying the legislation is half-backed and seriously flawed and would make our immigration problems worse. from what you've learned about what the white house has crafted, this rough draft, what's your first
on immigration. ,> john mccain's 2000 campaign when he ran for president, is the most memorable campaign. of any that i have ever covered or been around. we will never see it again. here he was, facing george w. bush who had all the face cards of the republican party backing him. the three republican governors in new hampshire and all the money. john mccain won out and held 114 town meetings. he stayed there until every question was answered. you could see the people, the light bulb going on. when will we the patient's bill of rights? the mccain would say, we are not going to get that, as long as my party is owned by the insurance companies, any democrat democrat is owned by the trial lawyers. it was refreshing candor. you could see it in people's responses. he was totally open to the press. it was a candor and openness. i welcome this. nobody had seen this before. nobody has seen it since. psychological analyst mark shields on his career in politics and the washington press corps. tonight at 8:00 p.m. on c-span's q&a. >> is morning, mark ginsberg discusses the situation in syria. and how presid
. the hard sell and john mccain gets an earful in the meeting over immigration reform. take a look. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop them? the only thing that stops them i'm afraid to say and it's too damn bad, but is a gun. >> we will talk with latino ronald reyes about whether republicans will get anything done on immigration when they say things like what you just heard. we are following the latest on the bail hearing on oscar pistorius. one detective testifying that police found no inconsistencies in his story. we will have a live report for you and you can always join our conversation on twitter. you can find us at tamron hall and "news nation." we are back after this. so you say men are superior drivers? yeah. then how'd i get this...

't help, of course, is that his former good friend, john mccain, just eviscerated him, grilled him, didn't give him a chance. yes or no. give me an answer. were you correct or incorrect? i mean, there is a way to try to do that, but clearly he came with a very hostile attitude. and it was very painful to watch. >> yeah. awkward at times. >> i mean, john mccain, mika, didn't let him answer a question. i'm sorry, out of that exchange, it was not chuck hagel who looked bad. >> ted cruz looked even worse. >> yeah. >> oh, my god. >> we're going to show all those coming up. >> he wasn't prepared, mika, in a lot of ways that were concerning. i think, again, the democrats, republicans, independents alike, if the republicans party thinks badgering an ill-prepared witness that way is going to help them with middle america, they don't know middle america. they could have just let him talk around in circles, but it was -- you know, you talk about the new senator from texas, john mccain -- >> i agree with you. >> as joe manchin said, it was embarrassing. >> compare it to a week ago, to a very prepare
, pure and simple. from the mouths of john mccain and lindsey graham as they slashed away at war hero hagel. badgering the witness is too nice a description. the hawks swirled like buzzards sweeping down, pecking and pulling at the skin of a former colleague who dared to say this country's been too ready to enter wars the american people quickly wish we'd never gotten into. what's with this hatred now centered in the american sunbelt? what do we make of this poll that shows two out of three texas republicans now want our president impeached? why the cussedness, why the range war, why the hatred of anyone who dares to stand with obama? why can't politics be a matter of belief and honest disagreement, not hatred? why the sick little intramurals we saw today? we begin with senator jeanne shaheen of new hampshire. i want you to watch this back-and-forth between john mccain and the witness today, chuck hagel. let's take a look. >> were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you correct or
by a slim margin. one of the most damages remarks came from john mccain over the iraq troop surge. >> would you please answer the question. were you correct or incorrect when you said the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam. were you correct or incorrect? yes or no? >> my reference to -- >> are you answering the question, senator hagel? the question is were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. i want you to answer whether you were right or wrong and then u you're free to elaborate. >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer to a lot of things. >> let the record show he refuses to answer that question. >> with us now is washington chief correspondent and host of "face the nation," bob schieffer. bob, good morning. i think they were disappointed. they usually press their nominees. >> well, thankfully -- and let's not forget, chuck hagel was the co-chairman of john mccain's presidential campaign when john mccain ran the first time. this is stunning. but i agree with you. i mean generally on something like this w
were. >> you give advice to a guy like john mccain. yeah, you have to be a little more popular with your state. he's aware of it. here he was. this is what happens when the republican party follows the advice of the thoughtful people like michael gersin. he's a former maverick taking on the current maverick. let's watch. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop them? because the only thing that stops them, i'm afraid to say and it's too damn bad is a gun. that's all that will stop them. >> i remember when you were in bed with kennedy. >> in bed with kennedy? thank you. >> most of the people that come across the board are illiterate, they don't speak english and they're a large class. we have a large group of people that you want to make citizens that are going to be on medicare, they're going to be on welfare, they're going to be on food stamps. you know it. >> again -- >> what's going to happen is -- >> again, sir, you're not telling these people the truth. >> you said build the dang fence. where's the dang fence? >> in case you missed it, i -- >> that's not a fence. >> t
she takes more money from lobbyists and special interests than any candidate, including john mccain, that shows that she doesn't have a sense that we've got to change our business is done in washington. >> ultimately, what i'd like to see is a system of public financing of campaigns and i'm a co-sponsor of the proposal that's in the senate right now. that's what we have to fight for. >> that was candidate obama during the 2010 campaign. the president railed against super pacs, then made an end justifies the means argument in 2012. look, the obama folks can rationalize this all they want. yes, they'll disclose donors and they'll be accepting small donor money but this is the campaign finance world we live in after citizens united. but offering this kind of access to big donors was precisely what bovm w obama was campaigning against in 2007 and 2008. every political strategist involved in the campaign told us on this show, both sides of the aisle, they all believe the campaign finance system is a mess, yet we continue to see a perpetuation of the so-called flawed system like what we s
. >> and in fact, anita, to that point, lindsey graham, john mccain have their own reasons for wanting some progress on immigration. marco rubio if he wants to run for president and we believe everyone has ambitions, would i think be in his interest to get this done now and a compromise behind him. >> i think it is in the interest of both political parties and for the nation to get this done now. however, michael's point about the fact that when it's bad enough having to do one response, andrea. i can tell you that as one on the other side and when you have a party that feels it's necessary to do two responses you have a seriously divided party with the challenge of trying to do something where you have such mainstream support from a john mccain, from a lindsey graham, from a marco rubio. it tells you how difficult this is going to be for the republicans to get this done. >> and for the president facing divided republican opposition. >> yes. >> thank you. we have to leave it there. good to see you. we'll be right back. [ male announcer ] truth is, nyquil doesn't unstuff your nose. what? [ m
no evidence of. you have john mccain coming to chuck hagel's defense. >> good for john mccain. >> good for john mccain. you have stepped over the line. >> there's been a pattern with the hagel debate of people going beyond legitimate public debate. we saw it on the charges of anti-semitism. now illegal money or whatever. there's a legitimate debate to have about chuck hagel or any other nominee. this is way past that. but there's an irony here. hagel, in part, got this nomination in order to bridge the partisan divide. it was supposed to be someone who would appeal to republicans. instead he gets reported out with a straight party-line vote. no republicans supporting him. this cannot be what anyone in washington intended. >> i know. john heilemann, i hate to keep bringing him up because i hate bringing up somebody simply for bad behavior, but i'm absolutely flummoxed by ted cruz's short-term and long-term political strategy. you know, mark halperin told me before he got sworn in, he was a very smart guy, a bright guy, a harvard lawyer. i just don't -- this is a guy that could have such
his record. look at this heated exchange between hagel and john mccain. >> will you answer the question. will you correct or inkofshth when you said the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since svietnam. were you correct or incorrect? yes or no. >> my service di-- >> are you going to answer the question? the question is were you right or wrong? i would like to answer whether you were right or wrong and then you are free to elaborate. >> well, i am not going to give you a yes or no answer. >> let the record show he refused to answer the question. >> he is the former chair of al gore's president committee in michigan. campaign consultant and national political correspondent for talk radio news service. thank you for joining us. >> ill prepared or overly aggressive questioning? >> overly aggressive questioning by a senator offending more and more people. an example of what is wrong in this country. kinds of personal attacks we are doing on people in both parties at times when we get to do public service. senator hagel came to the hearing w
of the pick? >> he will be confirmed. he was interviewed by another maverick. john mccain. if john mccain were in the witness chair would he get the same barrage from the republicans. so there are a couple of of old fighters. they will do well and i think that hagel will do very well. >> you like the pick? >> oh, yeah, i do indeed. i do. of course, leon, the supreme to me. i've known him for 40 years. but no, he will do well. and if there is any place you need to start messing around that doesn't have a thing to do with the forstructure, don't let anybody tell you, if we do stuff, we are expecting. admiral mullen was correct. saying the greatest thing isn't terrorism. it is the debt. can you go into the try care system. can you go into the contractors and defense flag officer. making 2300 bucks an hour. go look at contractors. go into the dod school system where it is costing $51,000 a year to educate student who are just a bus ride away from a public school. this is nuts. >> you just heard from alan simpson. chuck hagel will be confirmed and he will be helpful in cutting defense spending. >>
mccain. we've talked about john mccain and chuck hagel. once very close friends. mccain during the chuck hagel confirmation hearing was one of the most poignant, maybe ted cruise was the most poignant, but one of the most pointed critics of haling. mccain not putting his name to that letter. it's -- this seems like a foregone conclusion here in that this is much more for the public record and for history's sake why this letter was sent. >> and one more thing. before we leave, hagel, is this whole stir yesterday where. >> did you take money from the friends of hamas? >> it's lake-effect like this was a star claim we are bsh it got some legs, and it was all about theater. when you had all those senators, you know, people like cruise questioning him, talking about the friends of hamas, i mean, they were out for blood when it came to hagel and how to make a design in some ways. >> without even checking factual basis for their questions. >> no. >> you can ask anything and create a soundbyte, and people pick it up in social media, and it's off and running. >> there was some degree of
-scale blizzard. john mccain probably would have preferred to have been on the golf course. he was at a town hall meeting yesterday. he was for immigration when president bush was in the white house. when he was against immigration reform under president obama. the first term. now, he's back and for immigration reform. his constituents weren't too happy. one of them challenging him about why they don't build a fence. >> build a dang fence. where's the fence? >> in case you missed it, i showed you -- >> that's not a fence. >> that's not a fence. it is a banana. we're putting up a banana. about $600 million worth of appropriations that we have. >> bill: mccain has gotten so grumpy. when he ran for president in 2000, at those town hall meetings, i covered him in new hampshire. i traveled on that bus with him. he was so good at those town hall meetings. he was on top of it. people challenged him and he always had a good answer. little sense of humor. >> it's not a fence. it's a banana. >> that's one way to handle it, i guess. >> bill: stick it in your ear. cindy here to start off the hour. little bit
to light and john mccain, even though he think hagel is not qualified, senate should confirm him because of reasonable amount of time for questions to be asked. >> harris: what is the white house saying about this whole episode so far for the hagel nomination? >> president said in a google appearance that much of the talk about benz, many questions were asked about that, benghazi. congress is running out of questions. the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary and john brennan to head the c.i.a. are both hanging in the balance. the chief of staff says that is grave concern. >> between john brennan as c.i.a. director and chuck hagel as secretary of defense. we want make sure we have our guys working. we don't want something missed because of a hangup in washington. >> reporter: another vote on hagel is expected after congress returns. >> hagel is all but confirmed, how will it impacted his ability to be an effective leader. do not miss an all new fox news sunday, that is tonight when chris wallace sits down with lindsay graham, that is coming up at 6:00 p.m. eastern. >> kelly:
sub marines just to our 50. even john mccain who was quite critical in the hearing said this nomination should go through. >> right. >> well, yeah. on that point, it looks like the nomination will be confirmed. the problem is it loonlgs like there's a filibuster or attempt at a filibuster and that means democrats and the white house have to come up with 60 votes to get this through. mccain has indicated to break a filibuster. looks like they would have the votes to do that. do you think we have sort of crossed a line here, bad precedent set for future cabinet nominations? never before has there been a filibuster of a defense secretary nominee. only two rejected since 1959. nobody tried to filibuster one in that time. are we creating bad precedent? >> why the senate has the right as a senator said who is supporting senator hagel to do a filibuster. i think it would set a bad precedent because as many people often very conservative have said in this particular case, the president has the right to have who he wants as cabinet secretary as long as there's nothing egregious i
to filibuster a cabinet pick. i want to show you what john mccain said on fox. he said, there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly and said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war. which is nonsense. antihis own party, people don't forget that. is this hagel fight about policy or is it about a political payback? >> this is all about politics. when you listen to that quote from john mccain and you watch the way he and his colleagues conducted themselves, they look like an infomercial for anger management therapy. it was truly nothing more than a grudge match. we have almost 70,000 soldiers in combat in afghanistan representing us, fighting for our country and also protecting each other. we need to have a strong figure coordinating the pentagon. and the tactics that you see mccain and the republicans engaging in clearly undermine the next secretary of defense who they all acknowledge is going to be chuck hagel. the other issue, don, is politics in th
. take vietnam. i will never forget standing next to john mccain in the east room of the white house. each of us on either side of president clinton as he announced the once unthinkable normalization of our relations with vietnam, and efforts that john mccain and i worked on for about 10 years to try do. in the last decade, thanks in large part to the work of usaid, our exports to vietnam increased by more than 700%. every one of those percentage points our jobs here in america. in the last two decades, 1000 vietnamese students and scholars have studied spanish and taught -- have studied and taught in america through the fulbright program, including the foreign minister, who i just talked to the other day and who has feelings about america because of that engagement. the list goes on. as the emerging middle class in india, the world's largest democracy, buys our products, that means jobs and incomes for our own middle-class. as our traditional assistance to brazil and decreases, trade there is increasing. brazil is one of the new tigers moving at a double-digit pace. it supports addi
a double barrel shotgun. >> oop. >> senator john mccain facing an angry crowd. >> you've had enough time, pal. you've had enough time. >> tiger wuf athe commander and teammate. average joe shoots from the hip and the maverick meets his match. all stories making headline in the "week that was." >> imitations you cannot pass up. >> like, wanting to golf with the president. >> you know you have a good marriage when you say, sure, honey, go have a guy's weekend with tiger woods. >> reporter: so he did. the president flying solo without the fam in florida and teaming up with tiger on the links. tiger woods gave the president very valuable tips. the most value about one, erase all your text messages. that's the first thing do you. >> vice president joe biden is spear pr heading a push for president obama's gun control proposal. the advise he gave to a woman worried about protecting her home. >> if want to protect yourself, get a double barrel shotgun, walk out on the balcony. >> here we go. >> fire two blasts. >> his point. >> you don't need an ar-15. harder to aim and use and in fact you don'
, overall defense spending will go up. there's a split among republicans. if you ask john mccain that, he'll say do not touch defense spending, you to do away with forced cuts. there definitely is what this is exposing is a real tug-of-war within the gop over one of the main goals which is getting rid of the deficit and debt and that means reduce spending everywhere and historically, at least, since the reagan years, wanted to beef up and continue to beef up the defense department. there's no question. one thing i want to mention on this whole idea of what you said, suzanne, which is stage craft by the president, what i'm hearing from democrats on capitol hill, why are you doing this two days before? where were you with your bully pulpit out there warning about these cuts and making the case we need to get rid of them beforeha beforehand? people remember the president saying these cuts won't go through. there is frustration. >> summer 2011 that's when everybody knew this was going to happen. i want to bring in jess to talk about that. it's no accident he's at newport news. tell us what is
from coming to a vote until you get an answer to this. john mccain has already said he doesn't think the republicans ought to filibuster this. what will you do? you're just going to put a hold on it. >> i'm not-- >> schieffer: and what-- >> i'm not filibustering. >> schieffer: what would they have to do then to bring this to a vote? >> i want to know who changed the talking points. who took the references to al qaeda out of the talking points given to susan rice? we still don't know. richard burns, saxby chambliss discovered e-mails discussing change the talking points. i think her story after what we found out was incredibly misleading. i want to know what our president did. what did he do as commander in chief? did he ever pick up the phone and call anybody? i think this is the stuff the country needs to know. we pushed back against bush. we asked for rumsfeld to resign after iraq went to shambles. chaim not going to stop until we get to the bottom of it. >> schieffer: all right. >> if it hadn't been for the investigations and your show we would still think it was a video that caus
the cuts. i don't know. does that have any chance, ed? >> not necessarily. we talked to john mccain at length after a vote on the senate floor. he said, why would we spend months approving an authorization bill only for the defense secretary to decide where to make cuts? so i think you would see some republican resistance to that kind of a plan on top of a potential democratic opposition. that's one republican proposal. the democratic proposal which may get a vote later this week would end direct payments to farmers which was part of the bipartisan farm bill passed last year, one of the few bipartisan things to get through the senate and died in the house. the other thing democrats would do is raise taxes on the wealthy. that also expected to fail in the senate. >> all right. we're waiting to hear from nancy pelosi as we just heard from speaker boehner. i want to bring in a republican of virginia and member of the armed services committee. good morning, congressman. >> good morning, chris. how are you? >> the impact in virginia would be 90,000 civilians furloughed from d.o.d., army
enlightenment into action causing vose to honor our ideas as a nation. >>> john mccain's 2000 campaign when he ran for president is the most memorable campaign of any that i've ever covered or banaa around. i mean, it was just we will never see it again and the hearing was facing george w. bush who headed the republican party backing him and the republican governors in new hampshire and all the money and john mccain held 114 town meetings. he stayed there until every question was answered. you see the light of all going on people's head when are we going to get the people's rights and he's a we are not going to get the people's vote of right if it isn't funded by insurance companies and next question. refreshing candor to people's responses and then he was totally open to the press. there's a candle in the open as and a sort of welcome mess that no one had seen before and no one certainly have seen since. >>> both houses of congress are back next weekend with the 113th congress now under way we are taking a quick look at a few of the new members from texas. republican senator ted cruz replaced
think the republicans will back him? john mccain said he does not favor filibuster. i wonder if graham will have the backing. one senator can hold it up. clear me up on senate procedures. have to have 60 votes, wouldn't they to break that hold? >> i think a hold can sometimes keep away a vote of any number. i think what republicans are torn about here is the fact that on the one hand, they do think they have serious questions to raise about benghazi and that the american people have serious questions. on the other hand, when you get involved in libbia, there are always going to be things that go wrong. and i think republicans are worried about polling that have shown voters in general see themmals the party that has been more obstructionist and i think one of the reasons we have seen them compromise more since the election is they want-- they want to sort of sand of sand off the rough edges of their images and they're torn between wanting to push benghazi for substantive and political reasons and not wanting to be seen as "the party of no" as they do to many americans. >> and maybe the
, john mccain's changing his tune. we praised him yesterday. so he had to reverse course, i guess. so now he's talking about possibly delaying chuck hagel's nomination. and also wayne lapierre. this is very important. because if you look at the profiles of all the people that committed these mass murders in newtown and aurora and across -- virginia tech, they are all hispanic drug gang leaders. and that's exactly what wayne lapierre said in an op-ed that americans need to buy guns because those latin americans are coming to america, and they're going to kill you people. this is who a lot of republicans in congress are thinking about falling off -- don't do it. don't hurt our party anymore. let wayne lapierre go wherever he wants to go. he's going to destroy the party. we're going to talk about the crazy op-ed has horrible for our party's image, horrible for the conservative movement's image, goes against everything ronald reagan stood for. we'll talk about that in a minute. first, breaking news. this is bizarre. the feel-good story of the olympic games involved in possibly murder. >> this
